PERSPECTIVE is a groundbreaking series in New Brunswick, designed to transport audiences into the creative realm of professional dance artists and choreographers. It unfolds as a showcase of works-in-progress open to the public, creating an intimate connection between performers and the audience.

What is PERSPECTIVE an evening of dance, music, and discussion?
The PERSPECTIVE series is unique in New Brunswick. Performances are open to the public, and audience members are treated to an intimate evening of dance works in progress. They hear directly from choreographers and musicians about the creation process, and are then given an opportunity to share their thoughts on each work.
Artists receive valuable and immediate audience feedback. Seeing things from different perspectives helps to further develop the work for the artists.
Connection Dance Works acknowledges that it carries out its work on the traditional unceded territory of the Wolastoqiyik, Mi’kmaq and Peskotomuhkati peoples. We, the staff and members of the board, pay respect to the elders, past and present, and descendants of this land. We honour the knowledge keepers and seek their guidance as we strive to develop closer relationships with the Indigenous people of New Brunswick.
